Chef Frank Dodd showcases locally inspired cuisine made with ingredients from the bounty of Niagara Wine Country, and Winemaker Craig McDonald pairs them with wines made from grapes that grow in the same soil. Extend your stay in Wine Country, and allow us to arrange a private tasting in our Collector's Boutique or another Winery Experience prior to your meal.

“Fabulous staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Thank you Trius for a great wine tasting experience, my husband and I had a complimentary voucher and we were made to feel special. Lots of information and staff could answer our questions, so different to Peller winery experience.

The tasting vouchers sure come in handy! Trius and Peller are definitely very different- but both wineries deliver a warm welcome to any guest who walks through the door. I am glad you had such a great experience, you will have to come back and join us for lunch or dinner!

“Dinner at Hillebrand”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The dinner at Trius restaurant was creative and exquisitely delicious. However, it took far too long to get to our table -I'm talking at least 50 minutes to get the 1st course. Afterwards, the main took another 35 min to arrive. We were hungry. Our glasses of white wine reached room temperature. The timing spoiled everything. We didn't order coffee and dessert because we'd already been at table for almost 2 hrs. Eat a light lunch before you come & bring a book. June 24

I apologize for the wait time- Some people prefer to have time between courses to enjoy the paired wine with each course. If you give us a second chance, please mention your experience as the wait staff can try to move quicker for you! Hope to see you soon.

“Enjoy the luscious scenery along with the luscious gourmet food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Although we weren't planning on lunch when stopping at the Trius at Hillebrand winery, the restaurant was so inviting that we couldn't help sitting outside to enjoy the atmosphere, the view and a sample of their fine dining. As soon as we sat down we were offered complimentary glasses of champagne. Everything on the lunch (and dinner) menu was interesting and gourmet. Not really hungry yet, I settled for a delicious glass of their recommended barrel fermented Chardonnay and shared my husband's delicious tomato and red pepper purée/soup served with an unexpected crispy crostini covered in flavored goat cheese and tiny colorful tomatoes. We also shared the basket of absolutely delicious brown nut and white French style bread served with red wine butter (of course!) which was surprisingly good. Service was friendly and attentive, not pushy even though we ordered so little and felt we received a lot. We look forward to spending more time in that beautiful restaurant someday, inside or out.

The view sometimes has that effect on guests- you just cant leave without having a glass of wine overlooking the vineyards. I will pass on your wonderful feedback to the Chef as it is always nice to hear! Please come visit us again when you are in the area.
